I have been teaching Intro to Law Enforcement, Forensic Science (CSI) and Exploring the Criminal Justice System at Murrieta Valley High School for the past 15 years.  Prior to teaching, I was a police officer in San Diego for 12 1/2 years.  My experience on the department was in patrol, community relations, juvenile team, bike team (a proactive unit,) drug recognition, evidence technician, and trainer.  In 2005 I decided to become a teacher so I could spend more time with my family. I promise to bring my police experience into the classroom to excite all students about a very rewarding career.  
    In my spare time 
    I enjoy completing triathlons and marathons (26) with my friends.  I have  completed two  FULL distance IRONMAN!  The race starts with a 2.4 mile swim, followed by a 112 mile bike ride and finished with a 26.2 mile marathon.  I I completed the event in 15 1/2 hours.  My favorite triathlon is the Las Vegas Triathlon in September. 
    My favorite marathon to run is the Marine Corps Marathon in Washington D.C. 
    I am an avid Raider fan and know they will make it back to the Superbowl in the near future!
    I have two kids and am married to a wonderful, patient and supportive man, David, who is also a teacher. Together we spend our summers playing and roaming the country.  I have three goofy dogs that I love to take outdoors.  My daughter is a Nighthawk senior headed to college soon. My son is an MV grad and my daughter attends MV.  My son served our country overseas as a Marine.  OORAH!
